Enchanted by the summer's cool clear days, the autumn's brilliant colors and the winter’s quiet snowfall, the West Dover Inn brings to life the best of Vermont. Close to everything, yet far from anything, the inn is an ideal destination for a perfect New England vacation. Located only a few miles from the base of The Hermitage Club and Mount Snow our home continues an important American tradition begun in 1846. Originally built as a 3 bedroom inn with a stage coach stop and tavern, this inn has been lovingly restored and now provides 11 quiet, luxury accommodations as well as memorable dining in the 1846 Tavern and Restaurant. Beyond the rooms, this inn carries a rich poetic history steeped in tradition begun more than 100 years ago. The poem, continually written by each innkeeper, tells of the inn’s fascinating journey through the centuries - preserving a living piece of American history. We encourage you to ask Phil at the front desk to share this legacy with you. Thank you for being a part of our home and we hope you will come to consider it your own.

A real taste of Vermont

4.6 on June 23, 2014

This was our second time at the West Dover Inn and will not be our last! The quality of the Inn and the hospitality is totally outstanding. The dinning is a must. I recommend this place without any reserves. Enjoy!

We keep coming back for more!

When we venture to southern VT from CT, this is the place we love to go! Not only is the staff here very friendly, but they are very accomodating too. They make you feel like family and that is important! The food/bar experience is excellent and when you wake up from a glorious nights rest, their homemade breakfast awaits you. Writting this review puts a smile on my face because it is just that good!! No matter the season, the West Dover Inn has plenty to do around the area. I have another reservation to re-visit soon, and I cannot wait to plan for the following trip after that! This Bed and Breakfast is too good to not try!

Great Vermont inn!

I love The West Dover Inn! Innkeepers Phil and Kathy are wonderful, the food is fabulous, and the atmosphere is great. I enjoyed listening to Jim the singer/guitar player in the pub!

West Dover 45th anniversary stay

Historic and charming Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on June 19, 2013

This is a lovely historic inn. The innkeeper, Phil, is wonderful - very helpful in planning your day, and really tries to make your stay a memorable one. The restaurant is great - food is fresh and lots of made from scratch items for breakfast. The staff is very friendly. Will definitely return for another stay!

Fabulous Stay!

My husband and I celebrated our 45th Anniversary with a trip through New England including a delightful two-night stay at the West Dover Inn, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in this beautiful and historic inn. It was our second visit to West Dover and what really made this one a standout was our host Phil Gilpin who greets guests warmly, feeds them well, and even advises tourists about "adventures" in his adopted area. He provided us with a map and a narrative of directions for a day trip that included the Gallery of Humor, the Grafton Handmade Cheese Factory, a new Saxton Distillery, the homes of Thomas Lincoln and Robert Frost, the Vermont Store, the Christmas Shop, and lots of other cool venues we would have missed or been too timid to attempt without his guidance. Our breakfasts, cooked by our host, were excellent and filling and our dinner was as well served up by the gregarious bartender George. The chef sent out some amazing chowder to try in a delicate soup cup as well as an amazing mussel breaded and topped with pineapple salsa. Unusual and delicious treats! We certainly hope we can find the way back to the West Dover Inn sooner than later.

Great Inn

Comfortable old New England Inn

Comfortable old New England Inn, clean rooms with impressive dining room and bar facilities. Morning breakfast was excellent and the owner, Phil, is very friendly and informative regarding folklore and local attractions. We would definitely return.

Nice New England getaway

4.4 on October 09, 2012

we had a wonderful weekend at the West Dover Inn. The innkeepr could not have been nicer and more helpful. After hearing wha t we liked to do, he gave us suggestions to help plan our weekend. He printed out directions to local things and told alittle about each place. Our room was very quaint and well kept- a perfect Vermont Inn! The breakfasts were hearty and delicious-French toast, b,ueberry pancakes and omelettes. plus the packed picnic lunch was a plus! It is a great place for a New England getaway.

First B&B and we loved it

4.2 on August 27, 2012

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and we loved it. The West Dover Inn is located in a beautiful area. We enjoyed visiting surrounding towns and walking in the area. The suite we stayed was beautifully decorated and furnished. We enjoyed the bar ambiance and music on Thursday. There was a nice crowd and we had fun. The hearty breakfast was an excellent to begin the day. We would like to come back.
